Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

We proposed a modification of the “classic” fractionally spaced decision feedback equaliser (FS-DFE) in order to increase the slow convergence rate of the oversampled feed-forward section for LMS type algorithms. This is performed by employing a subband structure for the latter part of the FS-DFE, which results in a decorrelation of the input. We motivate why an oversampled subband decomposition is beneficial and comment on the selection of the filter banks. As an additional benefit, computational savings arise if judicious implementation of the filter banks is combined with the internal decimation and expansion operations in the FS-DFE. Simulations for a severe multipath environment are presented.
